Adding Documents

You have two options for working inside Grammarly:

  • New- Copy and paste your document from its file into the Grammarly window.*
  • Upload- Pull your file in from your computer.

*Librarian Tip: If you copy and paste a document into the “New” option from another software program, such as Microsoft Word, you will potentially remove any formatting like paragraph indents, italicized text, and special characters.


You can edit an existing document at any time by clicking directly inside the Grammarly window when your document is open. 


Grammarly will not override existing files, so even if a file has the same file name, Grammarly will interpret that you are uploading a new copy.

Deleting a Document

To remove files you've uploaded:

  1. Click MyGrammarly in the left menu.
  2. Hover your mouse over the file you want to remove.
  3. Click the trash can icon to remove the file.
